Spermaceti Candles

Spermaceti wax is a pearly white substance obtained from the cavities of the head of the Sperm whale. Gently warmed with water, then when cooled the wax would separate out. The substance was then pressed to remove any remaining oils. Once this is complete the wax is then re-melted and washed with a weak carbonate solution. This is considered the first standard candle but is no longer in production due to whaling laws now in place.
